Over the past few days, we’ve talked about ancient relics that have mystical powers, but how did the relics get those powers? Did they come from the materials with which they were made or from an external force, possibly the person or people who made it?
So today’s discussion is about human sources of energy and how you can access them. It’s what inspired the SIN HUNTERS who are an ancient race that have learned to tap the potential of their particular affinities as well as the energies of the people, things and nature around them.
But to start that discussion I guess that means that one has to believe that people inherently possess some kind of life energy – a ch’i (or chi or qi) as the Chinese would call the energy flow within us.
I believe in that and if you think about it, how many people do you know that are the “life of the party” and just full of energy. How many others are perpetually downers, that can drain the life from you by their very presence? (I based the SHADOW HUNTER faction of the SIN HUNTERS on such energy vampires!)
But what do you do about that energy and how do you tap into it? One way that some claim to do so is through the spiritual practice of Reike. Reike was first practiced in the 1920s by Buddhist monks and involves the laying on of hands to transfer healing power. A first level Reike practictioner can heal herself and others while a second level can even do so at a distance. Reike masters are able to teach others the skill.
The word Reike in Japanese comes from a combination of the words Rei meaning “soul or spirit” and Qi meaning “life.”
Now I’ve not had the opportunity to try out Reike, but I definitely think there are things that can “lift my spirit.” The ocean for example, is one thing that makes me feel peace and somehow makes me feel stronger. Maybe it’s because I’m a Pisces. Who knows. But it’s why I love spending time at the beach and also why my SIN HUNTERS are so connected to the elements of nature along the shore.
How about you? Do you believe in those life energies within us? Do you believe you can grow them, move them around or drain them?
